First Generation in the New World

1. JOHN STEWART, blacksmith, was born in Scotland and died at Springfield, Massachusetts on 21 Apr 1691, leaving no family, so far as is known.1

Biographical Notes:
“About 17 Scots were subcontracted to the colliers (charcoal makers) and other plant workers. Accounting records show that a few of the Scots received wages from the Company for skilled work. For example, James Adams was paid for managing ox teams, James Gourdan for mining, Thomas Kelton for mining and coaling, and Robert Meany for carpentry work. John Steward was paid as Gifford’s house servant, until the investors learned of the arrangement, at which time Steward was put forth as a smith.'” ~Janet Regan and Curtis White, Hammersmith Through the Historical Texts.

Sources and Notes:

“I see it as looking at a mountain range that each mountain has many creeks running down, and each creek branches and branches again, and each branch has a different surname. I’m trying to track the stream back to its source. I have to go through many names and it may twist around the mountain, but it will eventually get back to the mountain’s peak. I’m just not sure which of the mountains we come from yet.” Margaret Ballinger, a Philip McIntire researcher.

Digital version of Descendants of Philip McIntire: a Scottish Highlander who was deported by Oliver Cromwell following the battle of Dunbar, September 3, 1650, and settled at Reading, Mass., about 1660 by Robert Harry McIntire (Lancaster, Penn.: Lancaster Press, 1941). Hathi Trust Digital Library.

On 15 Feb 2019, Rose Beauvais notes there is a new softcover reprint available on Amazon of Robert Harry McIntire’s Descendants of Philip McIntire: a Scottish Highlander who was deported by Oliver Cromwell following the battle of Dunbar, September 3, 1650, and settled at Reading, Mass., about 1660.

On 14 Oct 2016, said, “My husband, Ralph McEntyre, is a descendant of Philip. Found this information from Ancestry.com otherwise we don’t know much other than what we have learned from this site.

On 28 Apr 2017, Maureen McIntyre Schneider wrote, “A book on the descendants of Philip was published originally in 1941 in Lancaster PA. Revised and republished in 1982 in Baltimore MD. Library of Congress Catalogue Number 82-82807. Inquiries in 1982 directed to Robert H. McIntyre, 328 Tunstall Court, Severna Park, MD 21146. Everything I have read in the records above agree with the information I have obtained about Philip, my 5th Great Grandfather from this publication. Printed by Gateway Press, 111 Water Street, Baltimore, MD 21202. Although this book is probably hard to locate at this point, it might be worth a try for those who are interested. With this book I have been able to follow my father’s lineage back to Philip the first.”

Alexander Innes, #13 on the “Scots at Lynn 1653. Iron Works Inventory


IMPORTANT UPDATE! (Jul 2018)
According to, Christopher Gerrard, Pam Graves, Andrew Millard, Richard Annis, and Anwen Caffell, in, Lost Lives, New Voices: Unlocking the Stories of the Scottish Soldiers at the Battle of Dunbar 1650, (England: Oxbow Books, 2018), on page 247, Alexander is categorized as:

Definite [that he is a Dunbar prisoner transported on the Unity]

Innes/Ennis/Evans/Evins/Enos/Innis/Aines, Alexander. Residences: Lynn MA, Taunton MA, Block Islan RI. Appears: 1653. D.aft.1665. [Exiles; Banks; DR; SPOWS; Ch.8]

For explanations of the category, abbreviations and references see List of Dunbar prisoners from Lost Lives, New Voices.



First Generation in the New World

1. ALEXANDER¹ INNES, was born in Scotland about 1632 and died at Block Island in 1679. He married possibly at Lynn or Taunton, Massachusetts before 1656, KATHERINE BRIGGS, an Irish woman who died probably between 1664 and 1679.

Children of Alexander and Katherine (Briggs) Innes:
2. ELIZABETH INNES/ENOS, born at Taunton in 1658, married, WILLIAM HARRIS.

Sources and Notes:
Bart Saxbe is a family historian. His research interests are (1) nineteenth-century Ohio, and (2) colonial southeastern New England. The latter concentrates on the Bowen family of Rehoboth, Mass.; the Walling family of Providence Co., R.I., and the Innes/Ennis family of Block Island, R.I., and Kingston, N.Y. He is happy to receive correspondence concerning these families, but does not take clients.

Alexander Innes died in 1679 at the home of his supposed daughter Elizabeth “Enos”, the wife of William Harris, on Block Island, Rhode Island. He made a nuncupative will[10] in the presence of Robert Guthrie and two others from Block Island, naming William Harris as his heir (New Shoreham Town Book 1:52). Catherine most likely died between 1664 and 1679[11]

“Alexander Ennis was evidently among those who remained at Saugus. He was listed on an inventory of the iron works dated November 1653. The inventory was a result of lawsuits resulting from financial difficulties. The Scots were valued at £10 each, though Giffard protested that they were worth twice that amount and some of the Scots more than that.”

On 16 April 2018, Janice Buss wrote, “Here’s another for your list: Alexander Innes (Battle of Dunbar; Saugus Ironworks)/ Katherine Briggs “an Irish woman” (Third Supplement to Torrey’s New England Marriages Prior to 1700, p. 159)

In the court records in Taunton, Massachusetts:

Alexander and Catherine Innes by Michelle Boyd.

Regarding Mr. and Mrs. Alexander INNES and fellow SPOW William PAUL from Miner Descent:

“Life in Taunton – The Irish Catherine and Scottish Alexander clashed with the Puritans of Taunton on at least one occasion. Saxbe writes, “‘an Irish woman named Katheren Aines’ was brought before the court at Plymouth in February, 1656/57, ‘vpon suspision of comiting adultery.’ The trial was the following month, and justice was swift and harsh:

‘Att this Court, William Paule, Scotchman, for his vnclean and filthy behauiour with the wife of Alexander Aines, is centanced by the Court to bee forthwith publickly whipt…which accordingly was p(er)formed…Katheren Aines, for her vnclean and laciuiouse behauior with the abouesaid William Paule, and for the blasphemos words that shee hath spoken, is centanced by the Court to bee forthwith publickly whipt heer att Plymouth, and afterwards att Taunton, on a publicke training day, and to were a Roman B cutt out of ridd cloth and sowed to her vper garment on her right arme [for blaspheme]; and if shee shalbee euer found without it soe worne whil shee is in the gou(vern)ment, to bee forthwith publickly whipt…Alexander Anis, for his leauing his family, and exposing his wife to such temptations, and being as baud to her therin, is centanced by the Court for the p(re)sent to sitt in the stockes the time the said Paule and Katheren Ainis are whipt, which was p(er)formed…’

Understandably, the Innes family moved sometime within the next few years. In 1659, Alexander is found in the records buying land in Portsmouth, Rhode Island, fifteen miles south of Taunton (Clarence S. Brigham, Early Records of the Town of Portsmouth (Providence: E.L. Freeman &Sons, 1901), pg. 379). In 1664, Block Island became part of Rhode Island and a group of Scots settled there.”

SOURCES AND NOTES:

Posted 7 June 2019 by Rose Beauvais:
As seen on our Facebook Group there has been some hearty discussions recently concerning the origins of John Upton, as well as other SPOWs over time. To clarify the standing of the Scottish Prisoners of War Society, I wished to iterate the society’s goal as provided on our website’s main page: “The Scottish Prisoners of War Society desires to bring together the known facts of the prisoners. By working together with other descendants and researchers we hope to contribute to the general knowledge of our Scottish POW ancestors and the historical events surrounding their lives.” We strive to accurately pass along the information provided to us by researchers and descendants as well as information from published works such as Lost Lives, New Voices: Unlocking the Stories of the Scottish Soldiers at the Battle of Dunbar 1650, (England: Oxbow Books, 2018).

Additionally, if time allows, we, the volunteers of the society, will assist to further the research by scanning the available primary documentation from the timeframe in question. As this work is completed, and/or offered by individuals as reference material to further the study of a particular SPOW and his line, it is compiled and posted to that SPOW’s profile page. This is a long-term project powered by only a few members who volunteer to maintain and improve the materials available on the website.

We strive to fact-check the information but, considering the origin date of most documentation, it is almost impossible to find, let alone verify, the accuracy of the sources. It is a dream come true if we can find multiple different sources which discuss the same event, thereby providing a comparison of the fact in question. This is why we rely so heavily on primary documentation from courts, churches and writings which occurred contemporary (during the time) to the SPOWs life and even these can hold errors such as name variations. We are aware of numerous family histories that were compiled years after the fact and may indeed hold information of value but it should be understood that these are widely considered as potentially flawed due to the timespan which passed between the original life of the SPOW and the writing of the book. We do not discount what may be gleaned from the histories, only that primary documentation is held in higher regard as a source.

As for the proving of a person’s birth place, unless primary documentation lists an actual birth (not just baptism location because even that often differs from the birth place) we can only state what has been reflected in the materials we have available. For most of the SPOWs, it is assumed they were fighting for their country of birth and we attempt to portray our uncertainty by stating they were “possibly” of Scotland. It is almost impossible to know for certainty and considering how the border line between England and Scotland was pushed back and forth, what at one time was Scotland was later called England so even that change could affect what country a person was born in at any given time. I don’t know of any SPOW researcher or descendant who would not love to find a church record that has the man’s name and location of birth inscribed but that would be a very rare happening. And in my own opinion, from reading multiple discussions on the matter of birth location of several SPOWs, it is apparent that this arguing over birth location is only causing a widening gap between the differing sides and it is not going to concretely prove what you wish to validate. But, thanks to DNA testing, we have the key to solving the birth location of these individual SPOW men. It will lie in working together to amass yDNA results which can then be analyzed to connect these men to their families they were forced to leave. The proof will be found in the genetic trails going back through the ages. For more information on the Scottish Prisoners of War yDNA study please visit the page at /dna-study-at-family-tree-dna/

Sent to colonies aboard the ship Unity in 1650 and was indentured to Saugus Iron Works. Worked alongside other POWs along with John Clark whose daughter married married Clement Moody. He had a son, Engrome, who may have changed his name to Clement to remove the stigma of being a prisoner. The lineage is vast and my Beede ancestors allegedly took into their home in Brentwood, NH an orphan of Joseph “Smallpox Joe” Moody whose name was Nathan and that entire line of Beede’s were actually Moody’s. DNA analysis connected the Beede line to that of the Moody’s. This information is included in the Beede and Moody DNA Projects.”

PLEASE NOTE: There are several Clarke lines in Massachusetts mid-17th-century, and there are quite a few records of Clarke men and their families including another John Clarke, so it is important to try and untangle them. 🙂 HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that each descendant of John Clarke, the SPOW read through this book carefully: History of the Town of Exeter, New Hampshire by Charles Henry Bell, I believe it sheds some light on John Clark and where he went after Lynn and information about military service and land ownership etc. It is a FREE eBook at Google Books.


First Generation in the New World

1. JOHN¹ CLARKE, was born likely in Scotland about 1625 and died some time after 1678 in possibly Exeter, New Hampshire. He married, at Wenham, Essex, Massachusetts by 1661, SARAH VERIN, the daughter of, JANE (CASH) VERIN PERRY, and step daughter of, MR. FRANCIS PERRY.

By Charles Henry Bell:
On 29 Aug 1661, a John Clark is in New Hampshire, and on 3 Mar 1674 a John Clark is granted 12 acres. On 31 Jan 1681 John Clark is granted 50 acres. In 1698 a Jonathan Clark is granted 20 acres. Three children are listed as the children of John Clark: Solomon, Ichabod, and Mary. It appears that the SPOW John Clarke did not stay in Lynn long after his indenture ended.

GDMNH has a John Clark of Wenham and it states:
John aged 58 in 1678,; Removed to the Squamscot Patent near Hampton (Old Norfolk Co., later NH) bounds by 1670 (bought from John Gilman in 1696).
His children (that are known, 3 in Wenham)were:

  2. Elisha: 12 April 1665
  3. Martha 28 mar 1667

  6. Ichabod, 25 Dec.1674
  7. Mary 18 June 1678

No date of death for John, nor is wife mentioned.
Genealogy and Family History of John Clarke of Wenham, MA and Exeter, NH, Marlene A. Hinkley, Bath ME, 1968:
“John Clarke carpenter in Salem, MA, from Scotland, (about 36 in 1659, QCR of Salem), about 50 in 1678, about 60 in 1680, first appeared in records of Wenham, MA by birth of son, in 1665, presumably had earlier child, especially Jonathan. Appears in Exeter, NH, August 29, 1661. Removed to Squamset Patent (Stratham) near Hampton, NH, bounds by 1670. Received a grant of land in Hampton with others Mar 30 1670. Bought from John Ollman in 1696. Benjamin Clark, b. Rochester, NH 1797, told his grandson C.W. Tibbetts: “my great grandfather was Solomon, whose father came from Scotland,” George Sawin Stewart called John Clarke of Wenham and Exeter a Scotchman.”
John Clark appears first as one of the Scots inventoried as part of the Ironworks assets.

From: Bill Clark – “There are two Ipswich Quarterly Reports that link John Clark to both a Sarah (likely step-daughter of Francis Perry whom John Clark lived with at the Iron Works), and a Susanna. Also, I can not find a source to support John Clark dying in “Hampton, York County, Maine (Piscataqua Region) in 1680”. According [to] the Genealogical Dictionary of Maine and New Hampshire (and other sources), John Clark likely moved to Exeter, NH after Wenham, MA where he probably died*.”

“Another family connection is that is appears likely that John’s daughter Sarah husband Clement Moody, was the son of Ingraham Moody, #25. This would mean that two of John Clark’s children married other children of other POWs.”~ Bill

On Feb. 11, 2017, Bill Clark – wrote,
“Hello – I just stumbled on what Kenneth already noted above: SPOW John Clark’s son Elisha married Sarah Taylor (daughter of another SPOW). This means that three of John Clark’s children married three children of other SPOW. Seems like our SPOW’s liked to keep the “clan” together in the first generation in the new world!

You could update the “Children of John and Sarah (_____) Clarke” family above with:
2. i. JONATHAN² CLARK, b. c1661; m. MARY MAGOON, (a SPOW daughter.)
